Be Strong, Painting, Acrylic on canvas, 2022 (20x20")
"Be Strong" is black and green, a combination of strength and hope. Every time Clara understands that I'm tired, sad, or worried about something, she makes me the sign to be strong with her left arm. It is a gesture that she has been doing just for the last six months. Some days she repeats it many times, and mainly after that, she kisses me.
It is challenging to hide emotions from her because she is super sensitive, and she knows what is going on around her. Every time she does her arm sign that means be strong, it gives me hope, and I can see things from another perspective.
"Be Strong" is a painting that reminds us to see life with other eyes, being strong but primarily sensitive for the things that are there and we usually do not see.

Clara woke up and wanted to paint some abstract on a Saturday morning. When Clara paints an abstract, she puts off her emotions and things that she could not communicate or something we do not know to understand.
It is a beautiful process to watch because you can see feelings coming out from the brushes strokes, from the quantity of paint that Clara is using, from her movements. It has passion; it has joy; it has the freedom to move; it has Clara being 100% Clara.
We are so glad to present Clara's new abstract collection called "GLEE."
